Preventative maintenance of any kind is usually something that should be considered routine. When your car reaches 3,500 miles, you schedule your oil change. When your hair gets a bit too long, you schedule an appointment at the salon. Your home is no different and that goes for your air conditioning unit.

Let’s face it, a really great day can turn sour if you go to turn on your air conditioner only to find it not working. What’s even more sour is the fact that you could have prevented that mishap should you of contacted your local HVAC company to come perform their bi-annual maintenance checks.

Besides the possibility for your unit to not work, here are a few more reasons why routine maintenance is an outstanding idea for your air conditioner.

  1. Energy Efficiency

Having a technician come out and inspect the air conditioner can help with energy efficiency and add savings to your wallet. How? Because, yearly preventative maintenance allows your air conditioner to use energy more efficiently. When parts have been cleaned and everything is in working order you lose the risk of damaging parts that are important to your air conditioner, you also remove the risk of putting pollutants and debris into your air causing health risks.

  1. Fewer Repairs

Not only will an inspection add to the energy efficiency, but it could save you in costly repairs to your air conditioning system. When you have your heating system and air conditioner regularly maintained, you reduce the chances that you will face a costly emergency repair in the future.

An inspection of your equipment should be included in every maintenance inspection. The technician will check for damaged or worn parts and will notify you of any need for a part replacement. You can replace the part to prevent further damage and avoid a possible emergency service call during a sweltering day.

  1. Extend the life of Your Air Conditioner

Regular maintenance will keep your system up and running well throughout its entire lifecycle. Cleaning and maintenance will also extend the life of your compressor. The compressor is a major component of the system and can be a very costly repair. Maintaining your system each year will maintain your comfort for years to come.

Most people tend to believe that having a HVAC company come out and clean their unit will result in the technician forcing unwanted charges on claims that certain parts are broken when they aren’t.
